Kids hat virgin wool fleece
Breathable. Protection in wind and weather
Babies and toddlers in particular give off a lot of body heat through their heads - so it's important for them to protect their heads from wind and drafts, cold and moisture, and thus prevent heat loss.
Made of pure merino wool (kbT), this children's hat has the outstanding properties of the natural material: it is breathable, has a temperature-balancing effect and keeps moisture away from hair and skin even in "dirty weather". As a downy-soft fleece, virgin wool also offers the characteristic roughened surface: the fine, crimped merino wool fibers puff out to even greater volume as a result of the roughening process and can therefore trap heat-insulating air even better. This enhances the natural climate-regulating effect of virgin wool as well as its fine softness. The deep-drawn sides of the cap protect and warm the ears all the way to the cheeks, while the tie straps sewn all the way around as a hem perfect the fit and prevent slipping. The only thing we have to confess is: The cap's fringed propeller serves no particular purpose - unless your offspring likes to fly around like Karlsson from the roof, at least in his (or your) imagination.
Angels. Children's clothing made from natural materials
Engel is located at the foot of the Swabian Jura and has been focusing on natural textiles in an exemplary and consistent manner for 35 years now. In addition to cotton from controlled organic cultivation (kbA), Engel processes pure merino virgin wool from controlled organic animal husbandry (kbT) as well as merino virgin wool (kbT) in combination with silk. All buttons are made from renewable raw materials. For dyeing the wool textiles, Engel uses only reactive dyes that bond particularly stably with the fiber and are characterized by high color fastness.
Merino wool. Fine, soft, naturally valuable
Two basic properties make merino wool such a valuable material for children's clothing and home textiles.
1. Their outstanding temperature-balancing effect:
Merino sheep provide a distinctly soft, fine wool, to which the animals owe their much-vaunted resilience. Not even the sometimes extreme temperature differences of their natural habitat can harm merino sheep: In cold weather, their slightly crimped wool fibers are particularly effective at storing natural body heat; in hot weather, the fibers absorb a lot of body moisture and wick it away to the environment with a cooling effect. Last but not least, merino wool is particularly skin-friendly thanks to its very fine wool fibers; even wool-sensitive people feel comfortable in it.
2. Their natural ease of care:
Children's textiles not only have to be able to withstand a lot, they also have to be easy to care for. Pure new wool fibers offer this enormous advantage: they have a rough surface and a natural content of wool fat (lanolin). This is why virgin wool is self-cleaning, as it were - dirt particles can only adhere to the rough fiber surface with difficulty. So it is often enough to air the garment and brush out the dried dirt.
